Buffalo opened up strong and scored early on a 60 yard Brandon Oliver run and the Bulls never looked back.
The Eagles offense managed to pass the ball around but for the second week in a row the Buffalo defense shut down an opposing teams running game as the Eagles only averaged around three yards per carry. Bronson Hill broke a run for 40 yards to the outside, without that run EMU's average in the first half was closer to 0.3 yards per carry.
Buffalo had success in every aspect of their game including an electric 96 yard kickoff return which negated any momentum EMU had garnered from the TYler Benz to Jay Jones touchdown pass.
Patrick Clarke missed a 41 yard field goal as time expired to sent the two teams into the half with a score of Buffalo 28, Eastern Michigan 21.
Joe Licata 8/14 - 113
